"Winter Steel" Original 50x35 Acrylic Painting

Yeah, today I dropped off my latest commission "Winter Steel" a 50x35 acrylic on wood and canvas with clay and glass accents. It was fun using all of the different media as well as juxtaposing the stark winter scene with the colorful steelhead. Only a few more days until I head off to Australia.

"Choral Koi" Original 20x20 Acrylic Painting

Happy Birthday Kristina! I recently got to do a really fun commission for a birthday surprise. Kristina is an amazing singer who is a member of Spokane Choral Artists and works with the Children's Chorus among many things. Her friends banded together and commissioned this piece "Choral Koi" for her. It is a 20 x 20 textured acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas. She received it yesterday and sent me the sweetest email today (see below) just made my day!
I received the most incredible gift last night! Not only a bunch of wonderful friends, but the MOST GORGEOUS 'Choral Koi'!!!!!!! That was beyond any surprise I could've dreamt up. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your painting. I'm sure that i don't have the words to express it correctly, but I adore it! Here's a weird thing that will make you laugh: I thought it was particularly amazing to be able to touch it! I love the way that your paintings have such a lush texture on the canvas and I've always wanted to touch some of them. Of course, I never did because it wouldn't have been appropriate. But, when Sarah unveiled your painting last night, after almost crying and falling in love with it ... darn it, I got to touch it! And, I let other people touch it, too! Is that weird? Oh well. I am delighted and still smiling ... and, I will be for the rest of my life whenever I look at that wonderful work! Thank you!!!!!
